Please watch your words! I don't want to be shamed just because you are badly
Yes we need it for better integration. Yes this already happened. For example
yesterday Johnathan presented me a Wayland live CD, I run it, started an
application and reported back to him that plasma-integration was missing. Just
by looking at one window I was able to see that it was missing. So maybe there
are real things in that plugin which provide better integration.
